    I did without the product for a couple of years after the death of my son. I am a lot more comfortable with getting back to me and caring about me and I purchased a sample kit, I knew Murad products is the best and the only product that I would be using. Thank you so much for making the best product ever.

      The mosturizer is a little greasy, but it's good for me during the winter when my skin gets dry. I wouldn't recommend the moisturizer for people with oily skin but the other products are fairly good.

      Works, but use cautiously

      By Jecca

      from Jax Beach FL

      Comments about Murad Bright Beginning 30 Day Discovery Kit:

      The cleanser is my favorite daily face wash. Removes makeup gently without irritating eyes or drying out skin. The moisturizing sunscreen is light and fast absorbing for everyday use. I am a freckled girl - The rapid lightening serum works, but contains hydroquinone so only use it at night! (I discontinued using the serum. Research the risks of hydroquinone before using, its banned outside USA. Alpha arbutin is a safer alternative but companies still use hydroquinone because it is cheaper ).

              • Q:

                Hydroquinone is a bleaching agent so this will help with Dark spots but is it safe to go out in the sun without a hat whilst using this product?

                • Brand Expert

                  A:

                  You are correct, Hydroquinone is a lightening agent. Rapid Age Spot and Lightening Serum should be used over the entire face nightly and sun safety is a must. If you are spending a prolonged amount of time outside I would recommend reapplying your sunscreen and a hat would be beneficial.

              • Q:

                So I used this product for about two days and the second day I felt like it created more pimples. Should I continue to use it because with some products breaking out then for it clear up is the process ? My skin is mostly dry and I usually get hormonal acne that leaves scars.

                  A:

                  Not sure what is causing the breakouts. Try just using the cleanser and moisturizers for a week then slowing introduce the Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum.

                  Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum works on all types of pigmentation. The key is to be very consistent with nightly use and daily sunscreen is a must.

                  A:

                  I would still apply the day moisturizer. The skin comes in contact with free radicals even staying indoors and it's important to protect your skin.
